I've been learning the architecture of computers, from the software to the hardware, and practically everything else that is used by a computer. So ofcourse, I quickly came across "Binary" numbers. I learned how to convert binary, add it, subtract, divide it, convert binary to decimal, and decimal to binary. But my question is... what can I do with this on today's computers??? From just being able to say "I know how to change the letter A, into "01000001", I feel like a pro, haha. But just knowing how to convert text and numbers into binary, and vice versa, isn't enough, I know that. I want to know what I can do with it? Is assembly language, binary? Or something very similiar? Is there some sort of "compilier" that I can send commands to my computer, using binary?
Sorry if my question seems dumb... I'm just still really new to this stuff.
